Two-scale interaction of wake and blockage effects in large wind farms

Abstract:

Turbine wake and farm blockage effects may significantly impact the power produced by large wind farms. In this study, we perform large-eddy simulations (LES) of 50 infinitely large offshore wind farms with different turbine layouts and wind directions. The LES results are combined with the two-scale momentum theory (Nishino & Dunstan, J. Fluid Mech., vol. 894, 2020, p. A2) to investigate the aerodynamic performance of large but finite-sized farms as well. The power of infinitely large farms ...
